Question about Barbie Sewing Machines
Since its purchase as a present it has never functioned correctly. The needle does not engage with the mechanism beneath the sole plate and upon examination it seems impossible that it could ever engage with it. We suspect that this mechanism either was incorrectly installed or that some vital component is missing. As it stands the Sewing Machine is not fit for purpose.
Thanks for using FixYa. To resolve the issue you’ll need to check the following things and take remedial action as suggested against each point---
1. Please check that the upper thread has not run out. If so, replace empty spool and thread the machine.
2. Check that the presser foot is not up. If so, you’ll need to lower the presser foot.
3. Also check that the bobbin winder shaft is not left in winding position. You’ll need to move the bobbin winder shaft back to the left.
4. Please check that the buttonhole lever is not lowered at the time of placing machine in the buttonhole mode. It will be required to be lowered.
Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

Hello. I can assist you. The problem you are describing requires an adjustment to the bobbin tension by turning the bobbin tension screw. When this is done, the needle will engage the mechanism as it should. If you are not a sewer, you may prefer to take your machine to a sewing machine shop and have them adjust it for you. On the other hand, if you would like to try and do it your self take a look at this link which will show you all of the steps involved and how to know when the tension is properly adjusted
